Great Sphinx Of Giza

sphinx

Reading Time: < 1 minute Sandstone eyes shine into the distance, A sphinx bemuses the crystal sky, And as I share with him, this instance, I wonder what he does, and why. Far on the horizon, he casts a shadow, Only he knows what futures hold, Transfixed through time’s eternal bow, He sees the sun unfold. Long, long ago, He […]

Corona’s Cloud

cloud

Reading Time: < 1 minute As she lingers in our streets below, “R” less than “ONE,” more than “ZERO,” I hear her cry out loud, “I remain your darkest cloud.” She did not ask to find Man, But was disturbed in Wuhan. The delicate balance of nature, Ripped to threaten our future. “Do what?” I hear you ask, Your lips […]

Reflections (3) The Nightingale

Reading Time: < 1 minute Looking through the veiled window, Which way will the nightingale go? Will it be up, will it be down? Do not fret, do not drown. Rest on the oak tree’s branch, and sing Your beautiful song, for the delicate spring, And whilst we  pant and fight, Desperately trying to save our plight, I sit and listen, […]

Reflections (2) – Lockdown

lockdown

Reading Time: < 1 minute LOCKDOWN   A particle so small, shaped like a crown. A disease threatening to bring us down. And yet, in the distance, I find hope, a brilliance.

Eyes

Reading Time: < 1 minute As I look into her eyes, Noticing the reflection of her soul, I fear the worst has yet to come, When our gaze will part, When our hands will lose touch. How fragile we are, How ephemeral our lives, When mother nature decides it all, When the violent rain and hurricane winds Let us know […]

Capturing The Souls Of The Incas – A Poem

Reading Time: 2 minutes Caught between two tectonic plates That slide seamlessly under the feet of unsuspecting crowds, A constant threat of crumbling houses and broken hearts, A cracked mirror that exposes souls, a deep vision of a setting sun, Children are playing in an improvised yard of crushed stones and hardened mud. They dream of somewhere else. As I […]

The Lost Girl Of Syria

Reading Time: < 1 minute Lost girl of Syria, Your heart shines as a diamond, Casting its spell in the desert storm, Shedding its tears over the trodden blades of grass, You asked for nothing and obtained less. Your love shines through a darkened skin, Your soul, entrapped in troubled times, Not knowing whether to escape or stay, Searches desperately […]

El Paso And Dayton

Reading Time: < 1 minute Surrendering passion to the forces of evil The running of blood, The shedding of tears, Escaping from the fear of those left behind, To never see again, to love no more. The evilness of a stray bullet, The madness of a look, That look of anger, Dissipating all that is human, Dissolving all that is […]
